I really appreciate the reader's contribution, but it would be great if she could improve on many points. I'm afraid she doesn't really know how to read many of those slightly difficult characters -- Lu Xun's vernacular writing is actually very easy, but she makes mistakes repeatedly. 刽 should be guì, instead of kuài; 柏 in 松柏 is of course bǎi, not bó. The most confusing one is she insists on pronouncing 阿Q as A Guì, which indicates she doesn't quite get the message of the author.
